Turn to page one and we will take the test.
Now count how many boxes you got correct.
Look at the chart on the back and level yourself. Leveling your students Use their 15 second goal from the goal sheet for their 15 sec test
It is the same for addition, subtraction, multiplication and division Set up Rocket Folders and Partners Write the starting goal for the student. Tell the student which level that they will be starting at. Rocket Math Files Set up files for each level. Each file includes the practice/test page and about 8 answer keys
Answer Keys should be in a different color
Worksheets should be double sided Daily practice
and testing Set up partners by placing students with similar levels- if you are doing both addition and subtraction make sure to look at both To begin, have all students practice on level A for one week. In their rocket math partners each student needs a practice sheet and one answer key for their practice sheet.
The practice sheets are broken into two parts. The top is oral practice with a partner and the bottom is a one minute test.
One student reads the whole number sentence and answer and they go straight across the row and the other student is following along with the answer key
If the student makes a mistake the partner says stop corrects the mistake and the student moves back three problems and starts again
After both partners have practice the teacher has the students move back to their seats and take the one minute test One minute test After partner practice they write their one minute goal at the bottom of the page.
Teacher gives the whole class one minute
Student must go from left to right and row to row without skipping
After one minute the test is over and the teacher only collects the papers of students who passed their goal. Passing Teacher corrects one minute tests of the students who got their goal or completed more
Student then move to the next level and add one to their goal.
